London || Streetart and Markets

Day 4 || Today, we went on a streetart hunt, self guided. We thought about booking a tour but we wouldn’t be able to stop and sit down during the guided tour or shorten it if we fell tired or anything. So we went on our own and it was still really cool, sometimes we had to search for the graffitis but that’s part of the experience, right?!

 

 

 

 

 

So we saw one piece by Banksy (maybe two, we don’t exactly know) and also ones by Bambi, Eine, C215 and others who we randomly found.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our tour ended at the Brick Lane Market and it was finally time for some shopping!!! I heard so much of the Vintage Market which is right next to the Brick Lane Market. So this Market is underground but still so big, I almost got lost (for real!). In the first five minutes I found a denim jacket with a Mickey and a Goofy patch and a biiiggg Goofy on the back and I immediately fell in love. But I wasn’t really sure if I should get it or not because it was 75 Pounds, so walked around in the market for a bit longer, got my mom to look at the jacket and then, finally, bought it. The woman selling me this jacket was so nice, we talked earlier and had some fun together so she remembered me when I came back to purchase the jacket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we walked to the close Spitalfields Market and my mom bought again some stuff and also gifted me a handmade bracelet. We also ate something and my parents had a glass of wine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After they emptied their glasses, we set off to continue our streetart adventure and found some more around that part of the city.

Eventually, we saw every piece of graffiti we wanted to and hit the road to get back to our apartment. For dinner we had some of these asian noodles, I don’t remember their name, and called it a night.

    London is such a great place for street art and your approach of just looking for spots around town seems like the perfect way to enjoy it – graffiti doesn’t belong in a museum or has to be shown in some fancy high-art tour, it’s just something one should experience in its natural urban environment like any ordinary person merely passing by…

      That’s so true, I think it’s really sad that people remove walls with graffiti on them just because they want a piece by Banksy, they don’t get what streetart is about and Banksy clearly doesn’t want his graffitis in museums or in rich people’s homes.
